La Fete d'Halloween is considered an "American" holiday in France. However, the holiday is observed by many with parties and costume events. Halloween is often celebrated at house parties and in pubs, bars, restaurants, and clubs, with costumes leaning more toward the scary side, instead of the cutesy or sexy side often seen in the United States. Trick-or-treating is very rare in France, but when it does occur, children go from store to store rather than house to house. Paris gets extra visitors at this time of year, as people tend to tour its spooky catacombs and a rare pumpkin patch exists just outside the city. Because, what is Halloween without a jack-o'-lantern?
